Bernstein, Penner, Clarke-Stewart, and Roy's, Psychology strikes an ideal balance between classic and current research, and contains substantial material on culture and human diversity, as well as updated coverage of behavioral genetics and evolutionary psychology. This text's complete learning program offers instructors, both experienced and novice, a "one-stop teaching" tool. In the Seventh Edition of this comprehensive, research-oriented text, the authors explore the full range of psychology, free from theoretical bias; blend conceptual discussion and description of research studies; foster scientific attitudes and help students learn to think critically; present lessons in a clear, accessible, and readable style; and demonstrate that psychology is an integrated discipline in which each subfield is linked to other subfields by common interests and overarching research questions.About the Author:
